Moody jazz. Michaela Rabitsch and Robert Pawlik are a couple for years – privately and artistically. Musicially the duo complements each other perfectly, you can hear it throughout their second CD „moods“ (Extraplatte), although they perform this time as a quartet.

To facilitate moods musicially, that’s a special ability of the Viennese trumpeter, flugelhorn player and singer Michaela Rabitsch and and her partner Robert Pawlik on guitar. Consequently the name of their latest album is „moods“.

Moods. When you listen to Austrian Jazz-acts and the programme in the clubs you could mean, that this genre offers exclusively worldmusic sounds. On the new album of trumpeter Rabitsch and guitarist Pawlik you can feel a little of this -but besides of Cuba and Africa you can fiend the Viennese soul and calm, moody moments.
